activism, advocacy

As many of you know, earlier this year, we re-launched our website in an effort to ensure that it remains a leading resource of HIV information and community support for women and girls from all over the world. In addition to a clean new design with increased graphics, the new site features an easier navigation/search system, integrates the A Girl Like Me blog, and includes many new social media functions to help users connect with one another and exchange information.

Got results today, not for bloods but from my annual cervical smear; all good, as usual. I dutifully go every year to follow recommended procedure because of my status.

It's been a while since my last writing. I have been consumed with new horizons and just living my life. One of the highlights was being able to attend the PWN's SPEAK UP conference.

A few weeks ago, I had the pleasure of attending the PWN SPEAK UP! National Summit for Women Living with HIV with more than 200 other women. The days were filled with workshops, activities, empowerment sessions, and hope. Although much has changed in the past 30 years, and there are now women specific policies and guidelines, there is still more work to be done. Advocating for women's rights is a continued process.
